New look, who dis?
Known for sporting an afro and beard in WWE, No Way Jose unveiled a new look in a new post-WWE teaser video.
Jose, who will seemingly go by Levy Valenz moving forward, took a page out of EC3's book by controlling his own narrative.
"I am essential. I pledge fidelity to the destruction of my former self. I am not my corporately mandated persona. I am not my material possessions. I am not relying on authority to tell me what is right and what is wrong. I will not let my value be based on comments, likes or followers. I will not seek affirmation from toxic group think. I will not filter my authenticity or self. I am essential," he says while burning his WWE gear.
"I will speak my truth through words and actions. I will wear betrayal as a wound of battle. I will pursue vengeance with a primitive and relentless force. I vow to find freedom. I vow to find purpose. I vow to create something that will last. I am essential. I control my narrative. Free Levy Valenz. You have been warned."
Valenz was released on April 15 as part of the company-wide cutbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His non-compete clause expired on July 18.
